 Pow Wow season is here! Across northern Minnesota, opportunities to attend pow wows are many.  Dr. Anton Treuer stopped by the KBXE Studio recently and shared some of the history of pow wows as well as what a person might expect who has never been.   Thank goodness we live in a region rich with this cultural experience.
